Sentry for Citizens2

Sentry for Citizens2

Sentry is a character plugin for the NPC plugin Citizens2. With Sentry, NPC's can be set to guard areas or act as bodyguards. Hostile targeting, retaliation, and a variety of options and stats allow a Sentry NPC to be customized to almost any guarding or combat situation.


Sentries Can:

  • Attack monsters, players, and groups automatically. Sentry also has built-in support for Factions, Towny, War and SimpleClans
  • Kill, and be killed by, players, monsters, and the environment.
  • Guard locations, paths, players, or other NPCs.
  • Use ranged or melee weapons. Shoot arrows, fireballs, snowballs, eggs, lightning, and potions with deadly accuracy.
  • Be configured with stats such as Strength, Health, Armor, Speed, Range and even Night Vision!
  • Ride mounts!
  • Work with Denizen to become Bosses and Quest NPCs that run scripts upon death.


A full list of commands and options is available on the Citizens 2 Wiki


Sentry makes a config.yml in the plugins/Sentry folder on first load. Use this to tailor Sentry to your server. You can:

  • Set defaults for new sentries
  • Change or disable the item used for various attack types
  • Add potion effects like slow or blindness to certain Sentry weapons.
  • Add armor, strength and speed buffs to armor and weapons for Sentries.
  • Set critical hit chances and messages.

The config.yml is commented with instructions.

    You're running Sentry 1.7.9 on a non-1.7.9 server. Find the correct version here:

    ... Update Sentry and Citizens to their 1.7.10 releases, not their 1.7.9 ones?

    Hi. My name is Molly and I downloaded Sentry and Citizens2 (both 1.7.9) onto my server (with Bukkit 1.7.10). Whenever I do "/npc create Guard" it says "Please report this error: [See console] java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: ft". Any help please? Thanks.

    No answers for me ?

    Also, two questions. Is it possible for multiple items to produce the same "effect" (i.e. both a block of dirt and a bow can make a sentry an archer), and is it possible to get an npc to recognise an item from a mod as a piece of armour? (So it will equip it as armour rather than holding it in hand.)

    EDIT: Realised I was using the wrong build of the same version, as that build was for 1.7.9. Man, all the small details you can miss... o_O

    Server Information: ""

    Antarctic Special Operations, home of the buggiest (modded) server ever! With the most incompetent admin (me) also! Currently unplayable on survival due to construction accidents involving but not limited to a rebar in the face. I'll consider opening for Beta testing as soon as I overcome my incompetence. <3
